    Default Plant for greenhouse?

    We have just built a greenhouse that is mainly to be used as a sun room, rather than a growing room. We would like a tall, but not bushy plant for one corner. Any suggestions?

    Plant for greenhouse?-dscf0103.jpg This is a runner bean I planted much too early so had to keep it indoors for a pet. Makes nice, tall , not too wide plant and all for the price of a bean.

    Default chilli

    i would go for a chilli bush they are nice plants and produce very bright colour changing fruit chillis always look grand, you should be able to pick them up as plants in the garden centre atm and they taste great on a fried egg butty

    I would grow a standard grape vine.

    Some one I know has a nice Cactus that you could grow

    Plant for greenhouse?-thcactus04.jpg & if you want Flowers well.....

    Plant for greenhouse?-thcactus05.jpg.

    He's got a head start as he klives in Tuscon Arizona, but it would probably be OK in a nice Pot as well

    I will be growing chillies elsewhere, but I do like the fried egg butty idea.
